Tigers are Making a Comeback

The tiger population is increasing across Asia, especially in wildlife sanctuaries in Thailand and India.  This information is from a report by the Wildlife Conservation Society.

The increased numbers are mostly from better protection of tigers’ habitat and — finally! — cracking down on poachers.  In Thailand, a poaching ring was arrested last year and their leaders are serving five-year prison sentences.  (That’s IT???)

And in Russia, the government has created additional protected areas for tigers.

Cristián Samper, president of the Wildlife Conservation Society, said:

“Tigers are clearly fighting for their very existence, but it's important to know that there is hope. Victories like these give us the resolve to continue to battle for these magnificent big cats.”

On the down side — tiger penises are back on the menu at Wong’s China Kitchen.

Rich fuckers, man. And for those who are into the whole aphrodisiac gig, just buy your lady some lingerie and some porn. Sheesh.

Randal: Lingerie and porn? That doesn't even begin to compare with the ground-up penis of an endangered specimen.

In a better time popular wisdom had it that "candy is dandy but liquor is quicker."

Of course, in a better time liquor was probably much chrsprt than exotic aphrodisiacs then. Now, not so much.

I think the original idea got lost somewhere. Wasn't it that the person who killed the tiger with his bare hands got the girl? The penis was just a trophy.

SW: I hope tiger "parts" are a lot more expensive than booze; otherwise they'll go extinct even faster than we feared.

Demeur: A girl or a tiger penis, hmmm...tough choice...

Remember,

This is the same crowd that don't care if Rhino's are in danger of going instinct as long as they can use their horns for their failed libido's

Or Ivory for their Piano Keys

Erik: And there are a lot of people in that "don't care" category. Who cares about endangered species when we can have delicacies, aphrodisiacs and piano keys?

Jess: Now you tell me.
